One of our Debuts of the Year 2011.

 

December 2011 Debut of the Month.

It’s not surprising that academic turned author, Professor Paul McEuen, is being hailed as the next Michael Crichton with this page turning 'edge of the seat' doomsday thriller. A biological super weapon from WW2 re surfaces in the present day; a threat made more deadly by technological advances and our crowded and super-connected world. The mix of chilling history and hard technological fact make this debut absolutely compulsive reading.

Sarah Broadhurst

Spiral Synopsis

The first bio-tech thriller from acclaimed Cornell professor, Paul McEuen. Pacific Ocean 1946: Liam Connor of the British Army, a global expert on germ warfare, is sent to help the US Navy foil an attempt by a Japanese submarine to unleash the world's first biological super-weapon. Code-name: Uzumaki. Translation: Spiral. The devastating decision is made to annihilate Spiral by releasing the world's fourth atomic bomb, obliterating the weapon before it can release its catastrophic payload. New York, present day: Connor, now a world-renowned Nobel prize-winner working on the cutting edge of nano-science technology, prayed that the spectre of Spiral would never return. But now it is back and the stakes are exponentially higher. Spiral would be virtually unstoppable with current technological advances and only Connor holds the key to its cure. Those who seek Spiral will stop at nothing to obtain Connor's knowledge, even if it means his death and that of everyone he holds dear. As the race begins for Spiral, will the world survive the Doomsday scenario about to unfold?
